Welcome to November's Chat Thread!
Due December 1-10
EDD: 12-6, Baby Boy: Axel
So this is my info for the first thread: I'm 35+1 weeks pregnant, due 12/6 (I'm sure he will arrive early though), first child, pregnant with a baby boy named Axel. Married for 3 years to a man that I love deeply and spoils me to no end. I work with my sister, we have a business that we inherited from our father, so we manage it and make it grow. I'm building a new home, and it gets me as anxious as excited, I live in an apartment right now and I can't wait to have a back yard to fill with plants.
EDD: 12-6; Baby Boy
I'm Hoda and I'm a Lebanese girl living with my German partner in a lovely smallish German city on the Dutch border. We have the (IMHO) cutest 3 year old daughter, who looks like her Papa but has my temper . Now we're waiting for Baby Boy (Official due date Nov. 30, calculated Dec. 7). Our small family can be a bit confusing (3 languages are spoken and we each come from completely different backgrounds/culture) but it - thankfully - works. We both work as engineers but I daydream a lot of doing something completely different though I'm not sure what.
EDD: 12-10; Baby Boy
I'm Breanna, and I'm expecting my first baby Dec 10. According to the ultrasound, I'm expecting a little boy. We don't have a name picked out yet, because my husband is very indecisive and insists that since I got to pick the baby's existence, he gets to pick the name :). We're living in Texas for his work, but our hearts are in the Pacific Northwest, where we hope to return before this kid has much awareness of geography. I'm already a full-time homemaker, and I'm very excited to become a mother.

I am a Birth Doula, Photographer, Wife of 10 years to Joel, Mother to Tor (6.5), Zion (4) and Enoch (2). I homeschool, part time cloth diaper, homebirth, spend too much time reading, love the Lord, am quite introverted, enjoy singing and theatre, and think I'm part-elvish.
EDD: 12-18, Baby Girl: Linnea Marie
I'm Taryn, due 12/18 with baby #4, a girl, Linnea Marie. Married for ten years with three kids, boy 7, girl 4.5, girl 2.5. I'm a sahm, conservative Catholic, breastfeed until 2ish, and other crunchy attachment parenting stuff. I'm hoping to be an ibclc someday. Right now I have an Etsy shop (speckledsunshine) where I sell custom painted plates.
EDD 12-19, Twin Boys: William Ernest and Edward Ronald
Science, math, and technology lover and educator (37) married since 7/10 to DH (42) who is a machinist - tool and die maker. These boys are our first children and we are so excited to have them join our family after initially being told that DH had no sperm and we would have no chance of biological children. God and medical science made these babies possible. I truly believe in miracles and I can't wait to meet these two little boys. Looking forward to raising them to be God loving men.
Due December 20-31
EDD: 12-25, Baby Boy
I'm Jenny, married for 17 years to my husband Koeby; I teach preschool in our home and he teaches middle school. We have five kids- Karan (14), Fiona (12), Bodhi (9), Bjorn (6), and Devon (3), and we're due with another boy (our surprise baby) on Christmas Day! Kids were all born at home, the last two unassisted. I nurse til 2ish, we cloth diaper, no vaccinations; we're sort of old fashioned in the way we parent.
EDD: 12-26, Baby Boy
I'm Lida, due with our first boy (third baby) on December 26. We live in cold Canada and we are pretty mainstream. We CD for the most part, breastfeed until toddlerhood, cosleep and attachment parent...ok, so maybe we are not super mainstream...more middle of the road, "do what works for us" people. We live in a largish city and are total suburbanites. I'm a public servant and my DH works in the car business. I like to decorate, organize, read and craft when I have time.
EDD: 12-30, Baby Girl: Amelia
I'm Trish, due 12/30 with baby #4, although this is technically only my second child as babies 2 & 3 were surrogate babies. This is the first baby together for my DP and I, but together we have two DDs ages 10 (mine) and 7 (his). and this one is also a girl. We've been able to agree on Amelia as a first name but we're still undecided on a middle name. I've had a homebirth, unassisted home waterbirth, and a mw-attended home waterbirth. Right now I have a midwife and plan another home waterbirth, but I may just decide to wait "too long" to call her for the actual birth :) I consider myself fairly crunchy and AP-exclusively breastfeed, cloth diaper (I even sew them myself ), baby wear, but I'm undecided about bed sharing with this one. She'll definitely be in our room, but I never slept well with DD in bed with me. Right now I work as a server but I neither work very much nor make much money so we don't know if I'll go back to work after. I'd love to be a sahm until she's at least 6 months, then get something part time while the older kids are in school.
EDD: 12/30, Baby Girl: Kira Carolyn
